Anolon Nouvelle Copper is made from hard anodized aluminum which is twice as hard as stainless steel and offers exceptional heat distribution. A double full cap base features a layer of aluminum that is encapsulated with copper followed by more aluminum and finished with an impact-bonded magnetized stainless steel cap. This unique combination of materials offers outstanding heat distribution and cooking performance and is suitable for all cook tops, including induction. Restaurant-tested Dupont Autograph 2 nonstick on the interior delivers enduring performance and superior durability. Generously appointed cast stainless steel handles are attached to the pan bodies using innovative flush-rivet technology which makes clean up quick and easy. Oven safe to 500-degrees F. Elegant stainless steel domed lids fit securely into the rims to lock in flavors and nutrients. Refined lid fittings are designed with extra clearance for added convenience.

Update: I've had the pan for just over 2 years now, and wanted to report that it's still in mint condition, without any scratches or discoloration of the Teflon. No chips around the rim, either. The decorative copper band is showing a lot of patina because I've never polished it. I don't care about shiny copper and think it looks just fine as it ages. I use it for reheating soup and chili, making oatmeal, sausage gravy, melting chocolate, reheating chili and so many other things. Rarely does a day go by that I don't use it for something. Cleanup is a breeze, mostly only needing a soapy rinse. I have never used anything but silicone and wood utensils, and never heated it past medium, unless it was to boil a liquid. I do make sure that I don't turn the heat up unless there's plenty of food in the pan so as to avoid damaging the Teflon. The Oxo 11" silicone whisk works well in it, too, and is a great whisk for nonstick pans. If I ever manage to destroy this pan, I'll absolutely buy another.
Original Review: I recently learned that this pan has 7mm of aluminum and .6mm of copper, which is absolutely exceptional. That kind of thickness should result in very, very even heating. I bought it to use in making steel cut oats and for heating thick, heavy foods and creamy sauces. Think queso dip that's been in the fridge, or reheating cold pasta. I was hoping to avoid the scorching that happens with my cheap, thin, nonstick mini wok, or the sticking that can occur with my uncoated stainless steel pans.
First up was steel cut oats. These take about 35-40 minutes for me, simmering on my GE induction range (set at 1.5 (low) on a 7" hob). The Nouvelle handled them well, with no sticking, no scorching and no dried out crusty bottom. I stirred 3 times, total.
Last night I heated up ½ cup cold, solid queso dip. In the mini wok, it would melt a thin coating and then start boiling, while the bulk of the cheese would remain in a big clump, slowly melting. I had to turn the heat WAY down and stir like mad to avoid scorching. In the Nouvelle the cheese melted smoothly, with no boiling at all. It was just all smooth as silk, gradually melting. I did this at 5.0 (med) on my induction range, and never had to turn it down. That's impressive. I've done it several times since, and if I set it to 4.0-4.5, a hair under medium, I don't even have to stir at all. I put the lid on and 3 minutes later I've got ½ cup of perfectly melted queso sauce.
It's coated with DuPont's Autograph 2, which is the hardest and most durable coating DuPont makes, and is said to be safe for metal utensils. I won't be testing that theory. I baby my nonstick pans and they regularly last me a minimum of 5 years before showing signs of wear. I really appreciate the flush rivets that also sport the nonstick coating. That's a nice touch, especially given the ways I'll use this pan. The exterior has a very shiny finish that is not at all typical of anodized aluminum, which normally have a rougher finish.This was a breeze to clean, inside and out. Note that it is NOT dishwasher safe. Don't even think about it. but it's so easy to clean, with just a swish of soap and a quick rinse, that putting it in the dishwasher seems silly.
A word about the shape. It's a tall, narrow pan. If you want a more 'open' pan, consider the 2.5 qt covered saucier. I had both pans in my wish list, but when this one came up for $20 as an open box new pan, I had to pounce on it. I've got no regrets. In fact, the more I use it, the more I appreciate it's design. Because it's narrow, it really handles smaller amounts of food well. When my current nonstick skillets begin to wear, I'll absolutely be purchasing Nouvelle to replace them, maybe earlier if I can catch a good sale. It really is that good, beating my best stainless steel clad and disk bottom pans, which are no slouches. I'm a serious cook and I demand high performance from my tools. I absolutely recommend Anolon Nouvelle Copper Aluminum for your nonstick cooking. It's one of the best pans I've ever used.
Too, I made homemade vanilla pudding and no sign of scorching. So happy about this purchase! Highly recommend.
